The commission, whose five members were approved by parliament, was sworn in on Monday by President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah and is headed by a retired police inspector general, Walter Nicol. The other commissioners represent the four regions of Sierra Leone: James Paine (North), James Aruna (East), Francis Hindowa (South) and Alhadji Mohammed Musa-King (West), Kaikai said.
One of the commission's first tasks will be to oversee the compilation of a voters' registration list, Kaikai said.
